How can I go from happy-calm to roaring mad?
I don't know why or how... but one minute I was okay, the next I was seeing myself hitting and violently shaking my son from anger and frustration. I was not able to control the sudden anger entirely... I ended up screaming at him.
I love him. And I really try my best to remain calm. And I try my best to be a fun parent. To be an understanding Mom.
Heaven help me. I really don't want to be mean to him...
At the homeschooling conference we attended, they said spanking your child when you're angry is being selfish, because you'd just be using the spanking to vent your anger, and not really to discipline the child.
And I know it's easier said than done... spanking and not being madat the same time. But I pray God will give me the grace for it.
